Profound Logic: Investing in the Future

Posted by Tim Losee on Oct 25, 2017 2:22:12 PM

The future of the IBM i community has been a popular topic for some time now... where will we be in 5, 10, 20 years? Will there be enough new developers to replace the retiring ones?

This is why programs that encourage young developers to join the community are vital to the future of the IBM i platform. Programs like Common's Educational Foundation enable students to immerse themselves in the i community. But large organizations like COMMON aren’t the only opportunity to bring new developers into the IBM i fold. Any business can create an internship program and give students hands-on experience that they will take into the professional world and shape the future of the IBM i community. 

Profound Logic is committed to helping preserve the future of the community by investing in the programmers that will take over in the near future.

5 Reasons AI is the Future of Business Technology

Posted by Tim Losee on Oct 11, 2017 3:41:50 PM

Artificial Intelligence (AI) like IBM's Watson has quickly emerged as the newest (and some would say, the best) transformative technology for business'. AI enables companies to gain a significant advantage by augmenting human expertise to help unlock new intelligence from data and use it to develop predictive insight. The shift to systems that can reason and learn from both new and old data can significantly benefit a company, making your business technology an asset to your bottom line. 

With the rising demand for AI technology, estimates project that the AI market will grow $2.5 billion in 2014 to more then $12.5 billion in 2019. Over the next two years over half of all consumers will interact with some form of Artificial Intelligence on a regular basis. IBM recently took a survey of over 600 companies using AI on different levels and created a Cognitive Global Market Report, within the report we found 5 top reasons to claim cognitive technology like Watson is the future of Business Technology.

In this series of blogs we want to highlight some of those customers who we have helped through out the years. Through this blog series you will get to see before and after pictures of their modernization efforts, as well as hear from the customers themselves.
